However-- and I know this has come up before, and been shot down for various
reasons--- Why not increase the daily limit? During the many times of low
traffic it wouldn't make any difference (or would it? I don't know how
list-management works....), and during the few times of high traffic it
would prevent blockages. Thus, we subscribers could receive a continuous
flow of Pearls of Wisdom , and H.E. the Lord of the Instrumentality could
enjoy his Life unimpeded.
